As proclaimed for the first time in August 2016, after just two years of work, the new sailor Egoist of the prolific designer Philippe Briand , a well-known French naval architect who lives in London, should be launched next summer. With Egoist, Philippe Briand, is aimed at that part of experienced sailors and with large financial resources at any time of the day decide to unplug to go along with his partner to live in perfect solitude the wonders of the sea without however renounce the pleasure of the comfort of a luxury maxi yacht. The famous designer about the project declares:

The beauty of the project is that it is designed for short cruises and is comfortable for a couple. This is why there is only one large suite inside the hull and it is possible to build Egoist in just two years “

  Usually a sailing and motor superyacht usually needs a large number of crew members to navigate.
While Egoist is a 30-meter (100 feet) boat built of carbon fiber with only one big cabin at the bow of the mast, it represents a real innovation in the world of sailing boats because it has been designed to sail unmanned so that only the experienced owner sailor in solitude can handle the navigation.
Moreover, despite the project being a cruise boat, Egoist also offers the opportunity to have fun competing in sailing competitions through the collaboration of a small number of experienced sailors as a crew.

In fact, Egoist is easily convertible into a three-sail regatta boat, and is designed to accommodate two crew members through a double cabin that is located aft but could be used differently if the owner chooses to sail alone . The interiors are spacious and absolutely original in addition to the forward master cabin with bathroom the project involves the construction of a large living room with adjoining kitchen along with a double cabin aft.


Another peculiarity of this project is that the owner can decide to leave the imprint of his style on every interior detail. Egoist must model itself to the personal tastes of the owner and nobody else. “It must be the boat they have always dreamed of owning and not the projects or needs of someone else must meet the needs of its owner,” comments Briand.

Aesthetically, the boat is presented with the classic streamlined lines filiform with an aerodynamic deckhouse  a clean deck with a central cockpit, all made in a modern way. The characteristics of Briand and his team are to design yachts and naval architecture using new technologies, both for sailboats and motor yachts. That is why over the years Briand and his team have won numerous international design awards and have collaborated with some of the world’s most esteemed sailing yacht builders.

Even the sailing equipment with only three sails, must respond to the pleasure of the owner and remains freely customizable. “The thought behind this project is to satisfy the needs of an experienced sailor with competitor skills and experience”, explains Philippe Briand, adding “The concept of selfish is to become a self-indulgent fantasy by the owner”.

We just have to wait for the launch of this new daysailer and the related water tests that could certainly represent a new future for cruising sailboats.

After selling 300 yachts in the list of 20 meters over the past 10 years Azimut 62 ‘and 64’ Azimut Group surprising even proposing another yacht in the same range.

A perfect craft already in that range offers improved solutions with other Azimut 66 can not be otherwise because Azimut is not just a simple company that manufactures yachts, but it is the reference of the market intended to build boats starting from already perfect craft observed by all the competition that draw inspiration from the models that a benchmark company as Azimut offer.

Therefore if a company leader proposes a new model like Azimut 66 surely it is bound to have a great market acceptance and likewise those who spend for Azimut 66 1.750.000 Euros ideal for the family and for the cruise surely expect the best from Azimut group.

Azimut 66 is just wonderful, new, contemporary. Materials used and methods of construction are very advanced but the main feature of this boat is the use of carbon used intelligently in the highest parts of the boat as the hard top (roof) the forward part of the flying bridge (the bridge top boat), the radar arch, making everything lighter with a considerable increase in stability.

The entire hull, meets the highest requirements for safety on board is largely made of special fiberglass very weather resistant.

The outside of the hull designed as always to Azimut by Stefano Righini comes with a sleek silhouette to mitigate the height, large windows, the flying bridge and the hard top, for maximum comfort.

The flying bridge is divided into three major areas; from beside the cockpit space is a sofa that converts into a sunbathing area; in the middle of the bridge the dining area with a table for eight people, equipped with outdoor kitchen; the aft area can be customized through a sofa or a sundeck overlooking the sea.

Hard top closes and opens automatically through an electric hydraulic system. The sleek looking forward deck is very comfortable, equipped with sofa and sun as well as a large area of maneuver as it is in the Azimut style. Aft hydraulic platform can be installed on a dinghy up to 325 cm in length.

The interiors, designed by Carlo Galeazzi, are very bright. On the main deck opens the living room with sofas, large side windows and chic details: TV (with screens up to 55 “) retractable, a display backlight, bar area and a dining area type bar next to the station guide to follow navigation in comfort.

On the lower deck are placed 4 cabins: the owner’s full beam with its large bathroom dedicated more than marine urban style; a VIP cabin with double bed and two twin-bedded cabins with portholes increased. The three bathrooms all have separate shower area. Double crew cabin is accessible from the platform.

The boat propulsion is provided by two CAT 1.150 hp each that can reach a maximum speed of 34 knots, while setting a cruising speed of 29 knots, will consume about 350 liters / hour all with a unique stability and in navigation is in turns despite the maximum boat from the water height of nearly 6 meters.

Stability is ensured by the special shape of the hull and double very innovative guide electronic wheelhouse, the bridge and on the flying bridge, where the excellent driving position allows maximum visibility. Also the two guide posts and remotely via tablet, you can get under control, almost all the plants present, through the integrated on-board monitoring. By engines alarms and bilge pumps, from the levels and unloading of the crates to the ventilation of the engine room, up to the audio system and air conditioning and the Government of the lights management with the ability to create up to three different scenarios d ‘lighting. All this shows how home automation or in general the technology is well developed on this vessel.
